Pawsome University

This is more than just a dog training podcast, it’s the podcast for dog people! We're here to help you better understand your dogs, and the wide spectrum of behaviors they exhibit. Fun facts, dog news, tips & tricks, insight into the world of animal welfare and more! Get to know more about our crazy life with our rescue pups, and laugh along to the fun banter! We've added a dash of puppy pitter-padders and excited barks in the background, that's the secret ingredient. Class is in session!! Your hosts, Jaime Caponetta (Certified Dog Trainer & Certified K9 Behavior Consultant), and John Caponetta (former Humane Law Enforcement Officer, and former Animal Shelter supervisor) discuss fear-free Dog Training, Dogs, Animal Welfare and Animal Rescue and more! New Episodes every Wednesday at 7:00am! Small Bites every Friday at 7:00am!... Show More
